Every Sport Has A Beginning

Bobsledding is a winter sport where a team of two or four race down an ice hill reaching the speed of more than 135 km/h (84 mph). The sport name comes from its early days, When sledders bobbed their bodies back and fourth from racing down the hills. Some thought when rocking or bobbing down the hill will help increase the speed. So after seeing them boobing as they race down in their sled the name bobsledding was made.
